The Sitka Sound Science Center offers a variety of science education programs.  Our goal is to provide opportunities for local youth and adults to become more interested in science and to increase their understanding and awareness of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems of the Gulf of Alaska. Our vision is to build on and expand Sitka’s legacy and potential as an educational and scientific community. To do this, SSSC provides a variety of educational programs for people of all ages. We have programs for preschool students, primary school students, high school students, college students and adults. In addition to our education programs we also participate in and produce science outreach opportunities for the community which are diverse and interdisciplinary, such as subsistence wisdom, science as art, and storytelling.  We partner with many local and national organizations to make our programs happen, including the Sitka Tribe of Alaska, Sitka National Historic Park, University of Alaska Southeast, National Science Foundation, and many more.
